Check out the Nintendo site for cool videos documenting the history of The Legend of Zelda. Part 1 is included below.
I remember when we got out first game box back in 1988. We got it for the kids, it was very educational.
Of course we had to try one of the games just to see what all the excitement was about. My kids were only ten or eleven years old so I had to show them all the tricks of navigating the maze in Zelda. If I remember correctly, it was me who taught them everything they know about computer gaming. Well, almost everything ... Okay, so they whipped my butt. They got lucky.
